Why Hydronic Heating for Poultry Barns can be Beneficial for your Chickens!

Using an in-floor hydronic heating system has many benefits. Even heat distribution, consistently warms the barn closer to the ground where the chickens are. Hydronic heat also has no energy loss through ducts or irregular air flow, which in turn is more energy efficient and economical to operate. Hydronic systems can be used with a variety of boilers including wood, oil, natural gas or solar heaters. In-floor heat can also reduce the amount of poultry bedding needed on the interior floors of the barn. Although hydronic systems can have a greater cost of construction, they are a good investment for farmers wanting to save on operating/heating costs as well as long term total cost of ownership, and in turn provide a better quality, healthier chicken with lower CO and humidity levels! » Learn more
